Rapid Results Health Project (RRHP)
With support from the Ministry of Health in South Sudan and World Bank, IMA World Health is helping to strengthen the health system at every level to achieve results. Quickly. Launched in January 2013, the Rapid Results Health Project (RRHP) is an innovative, performance-based contracting approach designed to help all 3.2 million people living in Jonglei and Upper Nile states—the two largest and most geographically challenging states due to rainy season flooding and few passable roads. By supporting 284 providers, RRHP extends the reach of primary health care in the region. It boosts county health departments in 24 counties across both states, building the capacity of health workers and health facilities. And, with the help of proven contractors, the program extends life-saving preventative measures such as vaccination, care for pregnant mothers and children under five, and HIV/AIDS screening and prevention. RRHP builds on successes and infrastructure established during the SuddHealth project, which IMA implemented in the same region from 2008-2012.
